j' iit.. The Truth of Pokerus
It has always been hinted that
Pokemon arrived from outer space or
are some sort of aliens. There is no
proof to this claim. Enter Pokerus.
Pokerus is a disease ("Virus")
that infects only Pokemon and can
be transmitted to other Pokemon via
the parent body, It' s all f and games
in increasing the infected Pokemon' s
growth rate (Effort Values), but this is
where the truth lies.
Some of the anygame info on
Pokerus are: Convected) Pokemon are
said to grow exceptionally well" and
Little is known about the
except that they' re microscopic life."
Even Professor Elm can' t explain this.
In "Catnapped", Professor
Namby explained to Professor Oak
that the Pokerus is an important
component Team Rocket' s secret
project that aims to infect Pokemon
with Pokerus to evolve them at a
faster rate (Red Margikarp).
The implications of these are
unsettling- The is an alien
Pathogen that breached the Earth at
sonne point in history', possibly' a
million years before the Generation I
storyline, the timeline of :
There have been several
references to animals in
Pokemon. So, this Pokerus possibly
infected some of the earliest living
creatures on Earth, sending them on a
long trajectory of violent mutation.
Perhaps only Arceus, the
Creation Trio and the Lake Guardians
are 'actual' Pokemon. Or maybe just
Arceus. The others are viral mutations
of normal animals, with Mew being
the first 'animal' to be infected.
This also shows v/ :..' most
Pokemon are based on
animals or worse, humans, The
Pokerus must have 'died off f some
time after the initial infection, but the
damage’ had been done.
There are still a few real world
animals in the Pokemon universe:
Fishes, Flies, Dogs &Elephants
Gastly, -“s Pokedex entry) These are
the generations of uninfected animals.
1/ , the 'infected' ones,
Pokemon. keep on mutating.
